The following article written by Bill Donohue was recently published by CNSNews.com. Recently, a professor from Georgetown University publicly rose to the defense of slavery and rape, and not a single major media outlet—with the exception of a blogger on the Washington Post website and a brief posting on foxnews.com—said a word about it.

By | 2017-04-12T20:23:21+00:00 April 12th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

President Trump raised everyone's expectations by recently delivering a powerful speech to the Congress outlining his agenda for defense, jobs, infrastructure, healthcare, education, immigration, and other policy matters.

By | 2017-04-12T20:23:22+00:00 April 12th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Unlike President Obama, who opposed giving poor blacks the same right that he and Michelle exercised by enrolling their children in a private school, President Trump believes in educational equality.

Gay activists can't even commemorate Ash Wednesday without drawing attention to themselves. That is why many accessed ashes mixed with purple glitter; approximately 150 participating clergy in several cities across the country took part in "Glitter+Ash Wednesday." A New York City homosexual outfit, Parity, promoted this stunt nationwide. Liz Edman, a lesbian Episcopalian priest in New [...]

By | 2017-04-12T20:23:22+00:00 April 6th, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

Catholics in America make up about 25 percent of the population. Yet when it comes to negative stereotypes of religion, Hollywood targets us almost 100 percent of the time. Nowhere is this more true than with gay-themed entertainment. The hostility shown toward all things Catholic made us wary when we heard about ABC's February miniseries on [...]

CATHOLIC FOES SPONSOR WOMEN’S D.C. MARCH

By | 2017-03-22T17:27:00+00:00 March 22nd, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The Women's March on Washington was a misnomer: it included many who claim to be neither a man nor a woman, yet were born either male or female. It is also a misnomer to say, as organizers did, that the march was about uniting "our vibrant and diverse communities": it sought to divide, not unite. Some [...]

By | 2017-03-22T17:27:00+00:00 March 22nd, 2017|Categories: Catalyst, Features|Tags: |

The Guttmacher Institute, a research firm that is squarely in the pro-abortion camp, released a new study, "Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2014," that is as interesting in its findings as it is in its interpretation of the data.
